Mary Ann (Lucchi) Skoritowski, daughter of the late Catherine Ravaioli and Mario Lucchi, born April 25, 1933, a longtime resident of the Tripp Park area, died peacefully June 12, 2018, surrounded by her loving family after a short but courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Preceding her in death was her loving husband of 46 years, Jerome J. Skoritowski, in May 2001; her younger brother, Gayton (Sonny) Lucchi and his wife, Ann Lucchi, of New Jersey.

Mary Ann was an honors graduate of West Scranton High School class of 1951. Pursuing a career as a bookkeeper, she was employed by Super Market Service and later at Iacabino's Meat Market. In 1989, she joined her son as an employee and bookkeeper at the Convenient Food Mart in Old Forge, where she played an integral role in the success of the business. In 2001, she followed her son to his second business and became a cashier at Par's Your Score driving range in Taylor, where she fully retired at the age of 80.

Mary Ann was a longtime member of St. Vincent dePaul's Church. For more than 10 years, she served as the coordinator for the very successful fundraiser, "Pot of Gold." Upon the closure of St. Vincent's, Mary Ann returned to her childhood church, St. Lucy's, in West Scranton, where she received all of her sacraments.

Loving survivors are her two sons, Jerome C. Skoritowski, of Philadelphia and his wife, Linda; Alan Skoritowski, of Scranton and his wife, Susan; two loving grandchildren, Eric Skoritowski, of Philadelphia and Sara Jane Skoritowski, of Scranton; her grandchildren, Eric and Sara, were the love of her life. Also surviving are her brother, Robert Lucchi, and his wife, Mary Rose Lucchi, of Scranton; her godchild, Lena (Alferi) Korusczko, and her husband, Ron; several nieces and nephews.

Additionally, the family wishes to thank Mr. and Mrs. Donald Egan; Mrs. Romaine Kwiatkowski; Krista and Ryan Heusner; Mr. Mark Lucchi; and Mr. Joseph (Gussy) Gasdik for their kindness and help throughout their years of friendship.
